Dear Parents, Guardians and Students:

The Government of Saskatchewan announced today the indefinite suspension of elementary and high school
classes beginning Friday, March 20, 2020, as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Details are available at

Regina Public Schools’ parents and guardians are asked to please start making immediate child care plans and, if
possible, try to keep students away from school as soon as possible. Schools will be open for students until the end
of day, Thursday, March 19th. Transportation for students will continue until end of day, Thursday, March 19th.

As of Friday, March 20th, classes will be suspended indefinitely. Please check for updates at
www.reginapublicschools.ca and on Twitter @regpublicschool. We will also be working with the news media to
share information with parents, guardians and students.

Over the next few days, we will be sharing information relating to next steps, especially impacts and options for
students who were scheduled to take exams and those who are graduating this year. Please refer to the
Government of Saskatchewan news release for current information on this issue.

We recognize that this is an unprecedented occurrence in Saskatchewan Pre-K to Grade 12 education and has a
significant impact on families. We also know that health and safety come first. Further information will be shared
as it becomes available.

We hope that you and your families stay healthy during this challenging time in our history.
